Learning Objective to be able to interpret the value of Pearson's correlation coefficient Match up the interpretations with the values of Pearson's correlation coefficient r:

r = -1

r = 0

r = 0.34

r = 8

r = 1

1. some degree of correlation; significance test recommended

2. impossible value for r

3. no evidence of linear relationship

4. perfect positive correlation

5. perfect inverse (negative)correlation
